Pratt's Voice of Warning was not the first LDS publication to lay out the tenets and theology of the fledgling Mormon Faith, but it was the first to specifically lay out the differences of Mormonism and other Christian Faiths. One of the most important and early volumes of Mormon doctrine. Flake/Draper 6650.
